'Into the Storm' could reopen old wounds

The trailer alone for 'Into the Storm' leaves you breathless, sirens roar as school children drop to their knees.Hollywood's treatment of a tornado with unprecedented strength rages through the fictional town of Silverton..But dealing with it at the theater may not the right move for some."The amount of destruction, of course it focused on a school it seemed very much akin to the Moore tornado, it was really traumatizing for me as an adult to view it so I can't imagine what it would be like for a victim," said life coach Kimberly Feronti-Dickinson.And in her experience it's doesn't take much to reopen old wounds."You don't ever totally get over trauma you move to assimilate it to put where you can handle it, the most important thing is to stay away from re-traumatizing yourself and being involved with the trauma, the best thing to do is stay away from it," said life coach Kimberly Feronti-Dickinson.Moviegoers who spoke with Fox 25 seemed at ease with 'Into the Storm', with some even putting a positive spin on it."I think that this movie could be a good representation of what we are in Oklahoma, being able to rise from something that has been incredibly traumatic and for people to be able to identify with it in that capacity instead of seeing the pain that came from that, I think there's a lot of growth and it just represents us." one person said. "There are movies about all kinds of storms there's not really anything personal about it, it looks fun, you take it with a grain of salt, just like everything else but it definitely looks like a thrilling movie." another said. Weekend box office results show 'Into the Storm' came in at number three and brought in over 18 million dollars in ticket sales.
